Mint Chocolate fudge for St. Patrick’s Day. Any excuse for chocolate! Mint is the bonus. The green gives it street cred for St. Paddy’s Day – though it also fits spring, Easter and the whole of the Christmas season, New Year’s, Mardi Gras—yeh! And this is the very best fudge recipe ever! Triple winner!
I like this recipe because it is so quick and easy to make. Gather the ingredients and equipment, melt the chips in the microwave, layer, swirl – done! Of course, you have to exercise some patience during the 2 hour set up time in the refrigerator. You really don’t have to watch it – unless you are guarding it from little ones creeping in with spoon in hand. (Yes, I have had to do that! And they weren’t so darn little either!)
Be sure to line the 8×8 pan. It will help separate the fudge from the pan once the candy sets. The handles formed by the extra two or three inches on each end will help in lifting the confection out easily. I use the waxed paper and have always had success with that. To me it is sturdier and releases more easily than the other options. Spray the lining lightly with cooking spray. I do one other thing – optional. About halfway through the chilling process, I gently lift the fudge up in the pan using the handles. Just raising it a little will stop a vacuum from forming and holding the candy in tightly. Plus you get to smell that great minty chocolatey smell and maybe even “test taste” the corner (yep – the “littles” inherited that gene)
Use a sharp knife to cut 1 inch squares of fudge. Print these Irish Blessings if you are celebrating St. Patrick’s Day with this awesome fudge. Gift it. Keep it. Share it. Hide it. Whatever helps you enjoy the richness to the fullest!
